Officials at a zoo in India confirmed a royal Bengal tiger escaped from its enclosure.

The escape caused the complete evacuation of the Nandankanan Zoological Park in Bhubaneswar.

The tiger, named Suraj,  escaped from the Tiger Safari exhibit by breaking through a rusted section of wire.

Visitors were quickly evacuated from the zoo, and Suraj was located wandering outside the enclosures at the Tiger Safari exhibit.

The big cat was wrangled back into the enclosure and the hole in the fence was repaired, officials said.

Visitors were allowed back inside the zoo once the all-clear was sounded.
